I know I should have covered the sides with tape to block out the light now i have tons of pins from the middle of my casing(rye grain)but no pins from the top and most of the pins are growing down and will never break the 50/50
should i take the top layer off and expose the substrate?

ps how do i post a pic I have some of this problem

just click the "add picture formatting" button and then preview your message, then post it and after you do that it'll ask you to select your picture file and upload it.

Well good news and shity news.
Good news is the smaller of my two side pinning containers is doing fine I simply took it out of its container and turned it upsidown(most of the pins where growing that way)it was almost like birthing a cake. Some of the pins are an inch big already.
BAD news is when i tryed it with the larger container it broke apart. I put it back in the container and back in the terrerium, but it was all mixed together casing and substrate.
It might work well see.

I'm going to try and post another pic (could the problem be AOL)??

When you type in the file name in brackets \ {IMAGE.JPG}, make sure you place the period and type the three character file extension (*.JPG or *.GIF ??)

Hey there we go I had to change the pic format it was in tif. all better

Above is the smaller one that pinned inside the container, below is when it was still in the container.

Think this will work, I figure its like a double cased flat cake.
(thaks for the help with the pics upload, lots of pics to come)

Wycrobro, What kind of shrooms are those?

i seem to be having this problem also using rye berries. the top layer won't fruit. then the layer gets infected so i scrape it and flip it and the bottom grows. the mushrooms grow very small and retarted looking but the stems of the mushies are so strong when i break them they crack. this has never happened to me. but this is my first batch of rye berry mushies. Maybe nan could explain this. i did use dark containers but the pins on the top just aborted and grew very slow. i am however having good pinning with ks and pr on rye.

sounds to me like the upper layer is drying out.

My problem was the clear container. I only fliped it because the biggest shrooms were growing that way. The shrooms are B+.
I have had some problem with the top not colonising, but a little time took care of that, all exept for one 2L tek, Im going to cut it out and flip it tonite.
Eatyualive what is you temp, this could be a reason for slow colonisation.
